I reside in London but I am of Kenyan origin. Having been smitten by Chess rather late, I improved rather quickly to my surprise and that of many.
I favour complicated openings with material imbalances, as most players in my view and experience become uncomfortable when drawn out of preparation and are unable to play their pet lines. And I have a penchant for attacking the opponent's King. I enjoy the King's Gambit, Vienna Game and have a predilection for the open game usually employing a classical set up as White against semi-open games. I have been successful with the King's Indian Defence and Sicilian Dragon Defence and Sicilian ..e6.
Positional sacrifices, aggression, creativity and elegant combinations are what attract me to Chess. And for these reasons I am enamoured of the games of Efim Geller, David Bronstein, Mikhail Chigorin, Mikhail Tal and Rudolph Spielmann. In these players I see exactly what I would love to see in games I play. #
